The Boat Rally for Kids with Cancer will be hitting the waters of Lake Joseph and Lake Rosseau Saturday, July 20, in support of children’s cancer research, treatment and care at SickKids. Dan Cooper has come on board as one of the executive Board Members and Boat Rally drivers to support this very worthy cause.
Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children. The Foundation’s fundraising is driven by the belief that improving the health and well-being of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society.
